The McLean Project for the Arts presents three new contemporary art exhibits opening Sept.10. All created by local artists and curated by Nancy Sausser, these new approaches to art will stun gallery visitors.
The Emerson Gallery will feature An Art for the Future by Robin Rose, an exhibition of paintings as well as interactive “sound drawings” that amplify the sound of pen on paper. Demonstrations are scheduled for Sept. 30 at 7 p.m. and Oct. 15 at noon.
In the Atrium Gallery artist John M. Adams has created a series of figures and drawings that play along the walls of the exhibit, capturing those inside it.
Paintings by Barbara Januszkiewicz will be on display in the Ramp Gallery. Her vibrant colors reflect American Blues melodies, and soundtrack will be accompanying the exhibit.
